Tell us your name and then a bit about yourself.
Hi! I’m Samantha Lind! I’m a contemporary / sports romance author. I’m originally from Alaska, but call Iowa home now where I live with my two boys and my husband. If I’m not writing, I can usually be found with either my kindle in my hand or an earbud in listening to an audio book! By day, I’m an accountant and work from home. My kids (and husband!) all keep me busy as they all play hockey! Our love of hockey runs deep in our house, so much so that my largest series is based on a fictional hockey team!
When you are writing, what are some go to’s that you needs? IE Foods to eat, noise level, place to sit.
I have four go-to writing spots. 1) my couch! I’ll sit down after my kids are in bed and write for a few hours while watching TV. 2) My desk in my office. 3)Starbucks! I tend to get the most writing done when I pack it up and head to Starbucks for the day. I take my earbuds, get my Strawberry Refresher drink and let the words flow! 4) Last, if we’re on vacation, my husband will drive while I write in the car! I wrote about 80% of Marry Me while we rolled on down the road!
What are you favorite things about attending signings?
Meeting readers! Seriously you guys are the best!
What author would you love to meet (Who is your unicorn author)?
When you are writing, do you have a consistent schedule where you write every day at the same time or are you a sit and go on different days to get it done kinda person?
Due to our busy family schedule, I don’t write everyday. I sometimes go a few weeks without writing. I try and give myself a few weeks off between books so I don’t burn out. I’m also very motivated by deadlines, so once I pick a release date and book my PR/editor/proofreader etc. all in, I do my best to stick to it! Having those dates in mind keeps me focused and on track for the most part.
What is your favorite memory so far as an author?
So many come to mind! Seeing feedback on my very first book baby! Attending my first signing and having a reader come up to me excited to meet me! Getting my first “orange tag” on amazon…. so many exciting moments I’ve had in the last couple of years!
Do you have a book that is your most prized possession? What is it and why is it so amazing?
I’m not a paperback reader anymore, so I have very few.
